Re: Lithium Screwdriver by WORX

I have an old Black and Decker that uses 4 double A batteries, I use it all the time too. Love it. Must be 30 years old or older. My grand daughter also got me one that uses tiny tips, perfect for small parts work. It uses a single double A and I use it mostly to get into things that have battery co...

Re: Should I buy my friend's Shopsmith?

Okay 6 inch wide is that wide enough? How long 6 ft? Or should it be longer? How do you joint a 12 inch by 12 ft long board on a 6 inch jointer? My question was how big a jointer is big enough? Ed, Kind of a moot point for me since my shop is too small to accommodate it, but ideally I would like an...

Re: Should I buy my friend's Shopsmith?

My question to you is what do you want to do on the SS that you can't do with what you got now? I am sure everyone will have a comment but this question is directed to you alone. I have one other question to those that comment on the 4 inch jointer. How big is big enough? What in furniture making r...

Re: RAS safety I might be wrong ??

I have never understood the argument over the safety of a radial arm saw. Tablesaws on the other hand terrify me. On a radial arm saw you always can see the blade, see how it is engaging with the wood and you can use your whole body to control the cut. I agree if you use a limp fish hold on the carr...

Re: ShopSmith Flip Stops

I think SS needs more engineering talent to replace the marketing types that simply do not understand these things. This is a major problem in manufacturing today. In the past most products by were designed by someone that realized a real need. Today they are designed by dreamers that have never ex...

Re: New Shopsmith DC-6000 Dust Collector

I usually can not/will not defend Shopsmith. I bought the DC 3000 years ago on the advice of friends. It is built to be highly portable which told me it was not a stationary whole shop dust collection system. I bought it knowing I was going to have to move it from machine to machine. Used this way i...

Re: 520 upgrade or?

The 510 is a good system. I really can't figure out the statement Ed from Tampa keeps making. His opinions and experience are certainly not mine or many others.I have both a 510 and now have a 520 also. The 510 is just as accurate and reliable. It's smaller but in using it it's just as reliable. Th...
